Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Meyer have developed a friendship, and Hernandez was one of several Florida players who played for Meyer that went on to play for the Patriots.

Another former Gator, Tim Tebow, was the topic of a question for Meyer, as a reporter inquired about the Patriots possibly using Tebow at tight end. Meyer said that he talks to Tebow weekly, but is unsure if he'll be used at tight end, adding "I don't doubt Tim can do anything."
